Final Fantasy XIV is soon going to receive a new update numbered 5.5 and titled “Death Unto Dawn Part 1” and today Square Enix released its trailer.
We get to take a look at the story and the new features that we can expect in the update, the next part of the NieR: Automata raid, and much more.
On top of that, we learn that the game has passed 22 million registered players since its release.
You can watch the trailer below with English and Japanese voices depending on your preferences.
Do keep in mind that some of the content of the trailer could be considered a bit spoilery.
A few weeks ago, we learned that the next expansion titled “Endwalker” will release fall 2021. You can check out tons of details and the first official screenshots and art.
Square Enix also shared plenty of details about the upcoming 5.5 update a little while ago and recently published a gallery of screenshots and a second batch.
If you’re unfamiliar with Final Fantasy XIV, it’s currently available for PlayStation 4 and PC, while the open beta for the brand new PS5 version will open on April 13 alongside update 5.5. The upgrade will be offered free of charge to those who own the PS4 version.
